Hi TheDcoder :)

In the Windows Disk Management utility, you can only expand a partition using the available space at the right of this partition. Since there's only 500MB free to the right of your Windows partition, you can only expand it by 500MB. You would have to delete all the partition on the right in order to merge the free space together and use it to expand the C: partition. If you want to expand your C: partition with the 500MB and 114.95GB of free space you have unallocated, you'll have to use a third-party management program like EaseUS Partition Master Free.

If you right-click on C: Windows 8.1, you should have a "Resize" option allowing you to expand that partition.

Thanks Aura! But what I did is something different

 

Solution:

1. Download & Install EaseUS Partiton Master Free Edition

2. Open It & Drag the (left) end of the partiton which is located next to C to the right side, free space will appear as you drag

3. Drag until you create enough free space

4. Right click on C: Drive & Select "Move/Resize"

5. Drag the (right) end to an end

6. Click "OK" & Click "Apply" (located at top left)

7. Restart

 

That's it!!! Enjoy, TD :thumbup2:
